How New Default Consensus Realities Instantiate

Smart Voter | Verified Voting | Election Online

Every state should have a site like Smart Voter, which presently covers elections in California, Ohio, and now, New York. champions reliable and publicly verifiable elections in the United States. A very pertinent issue in an age of questionable, first generation Direct Recording Electronic” (DRE) devices, to use industry jargon for computerized voting equipment., produced by the Election Reform Information Project, is the nation’s only non-partisan, non-advocacy website providing up-to-the-minute news and analysis on election reform.

Wish I had the time and patience to do more civic work, but I just don’t. I read most of the ridiculously lengthy California Voter Guide (an exercise that I suspect less than 2% of voters actually have time to complete), sent in the permanent absentee ballot on Saturday, and posted this on election day. That’s about all the patriotic civic duty I can must for one election season.
